Jesse Gunnin, President

Jesse founded Gunnin Land Surveying in 2009, during the Great Recession. As the sole owner and sole employee, and with nowhere to go but up, a stable foundation of positive thinking, quality work and client satisfaction was laid. Over the years Jesse has progressively delegated the day to day operations to his project managers and now spends most of his time in training/development of employees, assistance with difficult surveys, quality control and administrative duties. Jesse enjoys spending time with his wife and two children, traveling, hunting, golfing and working on his property.

How we operate

At Gunnin Land Surveying, we are a family.  We are proud to have team members that have been with us for nearly 10 years and come to work every day enjoying what they do.

We encourage the idea of training, educating and promoting from within, so we most often hire the entry level position of Assistant Field Technician. The qualifications for this position are minimal, yet the opportunity for advancement is excellent. However, at times we occasionally encounter dramatic workflow increases that do not allow us to strictly adhere to this philosophy. For that reason we always accept resumes for all skill levels and positions. Please send us a message below if you are interested in joining the Gunnin Land Surveying team.
